Calculations based on the rate equations for an idealized 4‐level system indicate that efficient repetitive cavity dumping of Nd:YAlG lasers is possible at repetition rates above about 100 kHz. Analytical forms for the field and inversion variables are derived. A numerical example illustrates the resulting operation.
